Overeaters Anonymous is a Twelve Step Program for people who have a problem with eating compulsively. There are ten regions in Overeaters Anonymous with eight of them mostly contained in North America. Region 5 is comprised of Indiana, Northern and Central Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Southwest Ontario, Canada. Region 9 is located primarily in Europe and the Middle East, while Region 10 is in the Pacific Rim countries of Australia and New Zealand.
Overeaters Anonymous uses the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts of Alcoholics Anonymous, changing only the works "alcohol" and "alcoholic" to "food" and "compulsive overeater". We find we can then closely identify with their message of recovery.
There are no dues or fees for OA membership - we are self supporting through voluntary member contributions. We do not take donations from outside sources in order to remain free of obligation and avoid endorsing outside enterprises.
OA's primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the still-suffering compulsive overeater.
We are currently in the early stages of building this site. If you would like to participate, you can submit articles or suggestions using the contact page.
In OA Love and Service,
The Web Folks
